Happy National Whiskey Sour Day! Here are five liquor-licious versions of the old favorite to help you celebrate. If variations aren’t your thing, you can always go old school and mix up one of our favorite versions – the original whiskey sour.
- The Baltimore Bang (via Saveur)
If you prefer bourbon, this is your drink! Apricot brandy helps it pack that special “bang!”, but you can also go the route Saveur did and use cognac.
2. The New York Sour (via Liquor.com)
Here’s to you, red wine lovers! Don’t wrinkle your nose – the wine mixes surprisingly well with the whiskey. Bonus points if your wine floats beautifully on top!
3. The Rattlesnake (via Liquor.com)
“It will either cure Rattlesnake bite, or kill Rattlesnakes, or make you see them.” Bring it on.
4. Whiskey Sour with Marmalade (via ThereWillBeBourbon.net)
Very similar to a Baltimore Bang – but with a marmalade twist!
5. The Ward Eight (via Imbibe Magazine)
We absolutely love the martini glass! This recipe is great if you don’t have a lot of extra ingredients on hand (or if you’re out of sour mix).
